Cards. I make cards all the time. I got a blog with blogspot and I follow all these other blogs that have challenges, ie make a card with that looks vintage, or is pink, white and green. It gives me ideas. I make the cards, enter them into challenges, and have won several times, then you can give them away or sell them.
Look at the customers your restaurant gets so you can gear your items to their needs. For example, if you get more women, you could make and sell simple necklaces and jewelry. Cookbooks with some customer favorites might work. If you sew, you could make placemats and napkins, simple potholders or hot pads; or you could do cookie cutters with towels. Take a look around at some gift shops locally, or some other chain restaurants that have gift shops to see what your competition is like.
I suggest to make & sell peanut brittle candy also make simple aprons & make some pecan butter as in peanut butter. It's very good, search online for more craft ideas, good luck.
